rounds, to kill those 26 souls at sandy hook elementary. with me at the table today is anthea butler, professor of religious studies at the university of pennsylvania. msnbc contributor ari melber of the nation magazine. joe watkins, republican strategist and former aide to president george h.w. bush and mark glaze, director of mayors against illegal guns. so that was a lot, a lot to deal with, a lot of history of the nra. it's interesting because in the history of the nra it used to be sort of a sporting and hunting organization, training. they actually used to support gun control legislation. let's talk about what changed and mark, i know you are an expert in this. what changed about the nra itself in terms of its advocacy that made it an opponent of gun control? >> well, there -- thanks for asking, first of all. i think it's kind of the lingering question underneath gun policy. why doesn't congress, why don't state legislatures do more. the easy answer is a mythology has developed about the ability of the nra to kick elected officials out of office that is almost entirely untrue b

at eucerinus.com. ♪ >>> the shocking massacre at sandy hook elementary school was about many things. the horrors of gun violence and the easy availability of deadly weapons. the realities and the unfair stigma of mental illness, and the eternal vulnerability of our children. but it was also about something else. because something else happened in that school that was both tragic and amazing. teachers, young and middle-aged, from different backgrounds and from different walks of life, risked and in some cases gave their lives to protect the kids in their care. teachers and school administrators like dawn hochsprung, who lunged toward the gunman before being shot to death alongside the school's counselor. victoria soto, who hid half a dozen children in a closet before being killed herself while shielding her students. and anne marie murphy, whose body was reportedly found guarding the tiny bodies beneath her in an attempt to save them. we have had moments like this in this country where we haven't seemed to appreciate teachers much. we've seen battles over their union benefits and rig

sandy which massively damaged what you were doing. how does it feel when you are obviously facing a circumstance like homelessness and the ways in which it impacts the lgbt youth, and then suddenly, have a problem of a hurricane to show up to make things harder? >> it was unbelievably challenging time for us. our drop-in center that was destroyed by sandy was half a block from the hudson river, and the kid s ths that we serve thee the kids who don't have anywhere to stay. we have a number of housing sites, but in new york city, there are only 250 youth shelter beds provided for 3shgs 800 homeless kids. so these are kids who are in such desperate situations already sleeping on the trains, sleeping in abandoned buildings, and to have their kind of lifeline destroyed was really challenging. i was in a panic. a total panic and i did not know how we would take care of the kids. i didn't know how we would get to the next space. we had actually already obtained a new space, but we were months of being able to move into there, but the miracle to me of this whole thing was that within four

in front of the bullets. what teacher at sandy hook or columbine wouldn't have even with a little bit of training, wouldn't have had a firearm rather than put themselves in front of the bullet. just the extra option. >> you've been offering gun training for a long time, i understand. are you surprised at all by the conflict in newtown? >> i was surprised, but it's completely understanda believe because people realize how vulnerable they are and what we need to be doing is projecting that position of security on our schools rather than projecting the vulnerability and what we have in the gun-free school zones right now is nothing, but an advertisement to the crazies out there that they're not going have any return fire. >> but clark, is it a good idea to have more guns in and around school? is it a good idea to do away with gun-free school zones. >> there are bad people with guns and good people with guns. who do you call when the shooter comes you call the good people with the guns and unfortunately they show up too late and our first response are the teachers and let's not disarm the
